Church Clean-up Time – Please join us – Nov. 13th after the 10:00 service until 1:30
The Good News Garden group got inspired to straighten up the church last Saturday – it was a rainy day and we opted to focus on our indoor space.  Please join us to do more straightening up and cleaning after the 10:00 service on Nov. 13.  Questions?  Contact Deacon Margaret, mdyerc@stanford.edu

MORE THAN ENOUGH - Stewardship Reflection for November 13, 2022
Link:  On the Promise of Abundance

Questions for reflection:
•    When was a time when you were expecting the worst but were surprised by a pleasant outcome instead?
•    How might the words of Jesus in the Gospel reading give reassurance to us today when we face grim circumstances?

Diocese of California Bishop Search - A prayer for transition
The Standing Committee has asked congregations to pray for the new Bishop search process. We'll add this to our weekly petitions in the Prayers of the People, and from time to time we will pray this prayer they have provided for us during this period of transition in our diocese:
  •     Almighty God, giver of every good gift, by your grace you have called us into one fellowship of faith: Look graciously on the people of the Diocese of California during this time of transition.  May we be guided in heart and mind by your Holy Spirit to seek and welcome a faithful pastor who will care for your people and equip us to perform the work of the Church. Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would have us do. Save us from all false choices, that in your light we may see light, and on your path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
Cameron is on Sabbatical
Cameron is on a long-planned sabbatical (August 1st – November 27th). While he is away, the Reverend Scot Sherman is serving in his stead, on a half-time basis.

This is a time of growth and opportunity for all of us-- for Cameron in this time of sabbatical, for St. Aidan’s as we make our way into to Vital + Thriving program, and for Scot as he walks more closely with St. Aidan’s on this journey.
